Onion Nettle Sock from Onion Knit is a fingering weight yarn of Wool and Nettle fibre. This combination is perfect for showing stitch definition in sock and lace patterns and adds brilliant texture. We stock this yarn in a range of bright and pastel colours which have a slight sheen and heathered texture thanks to the way the nettle fibres resist the dye.

Nettle is a fantastic alternative to synthetic fibres such as Nylon for adding extra strength and durability without the environmental impact of using a non-renewable resource.
